Top 7 Climate Change Hypocrites

Rebel Staff

"Do as we say, not as we do!" That's the message of the climate change hypocrites who can't seem to practise what they preach:

7.  Sir Richard Branson

In 2006, Branson, pledged to spend $3 billion over the next decade to develop biofuels.  Almost ten years later it appears he’s come well short of that goal.  However, he has found other things to invest in: his airlines have increased daily flight traffic.  He’s unveiled Virgin Racing -- which briefly competed in Formula One -- as well as Virgin Galactic, his dream project of launching gas-guzzling commercial flights into space for $250,000 per passenger. First up? Leonardo DiCaprio! (See #4.)

6.  Bill Nye “The Science Guy”

He was heavily chastised on Earth Day as he tweeted that he was heading down to DC to catch a flight on Air Force One with the President to act on climate.  Nye, was evidently unaware how bragging about flying thousands of miles to board another plane to fly thousands more miles with the President could appear just a tad hypocritical.  Maybe the two of them should have taken a long bike ride instead.

5.  The Davos Elites

1,700 private jets were reportedly used to fly the world’s elites out to the conference in Switzerland.  The same conference that also made ‘climate change’ a big topic at this year’s meeting. Not only that, the global jet setters also thought they’d tackle "global inequality" as they stood on their hypocritical soapbox.

4.  Hollywood Celebrities

Leonardo DiCaprio has vaulted to the top of the green celebrity hypocrites. Speaking last year at a UN climate summit, Leo reminded the world that he was "not an expert" in this field, but he still called climate change "humankind’s greatest challenge." He has since shown everyone just how "not an expert" he actually is by partying on super yachts, flying around the world on private jets, acquiring multiple carbon-intensive mega mansions, and has even made plans to travel to space on Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic. One trip aboard the Galactic has five times the carbon footprint of one commercial flight from Singapore to London.

3.  Everyone behind the CFL Light Bulb

This so-called "green-energy" solution is toxic, reportedly causes cancer, and is polluting the earth when it hits the  landfills. If the government wants to ban a light bulb, this one should be at the top of the list.

2.  David Suzuki

There’s none bigger north of the border! His tirades and dictatorship style of ruling peoples’ lives on climate matters rings a little hollow: Suzuki has multi-million dollar homes (where he left all the lights on during Earth Hour). His hypocritical lifestyle has left the biggest carbon footprint of us all.

1.  Al Gore

Aside from the jet setting, the multi-million-dollar homes, and the Co2 consuming lifestyle, the biggest piece of evidence against Gore is when he sold his Current TV for $500 million to Al Jazeera.  You know, the news service funded by the oil and gas rich Arab nation of Qatar, called by some "the propaganda outfit for the Muslim world." Gore actually pocketed close to $100 million in the transaction with his so-called “enemies”.

I hate Gore! My younger sister has to watch his crap movies in grade 10 science. Waste of my tax dollars.

Banning incandescent light bulbs was a major league rent seeking scam offshoot of the Globull Warming scam.
Polluting mercury bulbs were to be just the interim backup until the new super expensive to buy, super cheap to make, super patent protected lights arrived. Then the science and mass production didn’t mesh and the house of cards fell down.
Today you can buy “heritage” incandescent bulbs, $10 each, or “modern” LEDs

The “green demons” are working overtime to kill off intelligent thought! It’s why they no longer teach children to think for themselves in school, or teach them anything that may improve humanities lot. They have been forcing their socialist agenda on our children since the 70’s. But it isn’t about you and I, it’s about suspending rational thought, so it will be easier for the UN to overtake the world.

I still can’t get my head around the “green” concept. hasn’t any of these nutbars ever heard of photosynthesis?, or the FACT that plants need CO2 to convert chlorophyll to oxygen? how in hell is “green”… anything… green? too bad the education system has forgone real science for this crap. if nothing else, change the brand from green to what they really want… grey.

The driving force behind the global warming theory (now renamed climate change) is a transfer of wealth, according to the UN who started all this global warming hype.

So in some sort of twisted way it is at least somewhat understandable why the UN and those that profit from the global warming scam would push it, greed. But what about those who do not profit from it? Those people are the true idiots because not only do they not profit from it but have to pay for it through their taxes.

So sick & tired of these high falluting hypocrites who are always preaching to us about climate change & the minute they finish doing that, they turn around & do the exact opposite. Also tired of all the sheep following them & think it’s gospel preaching. Yes, there is “climate change” & it has been going on for centuries. Why are they calling it “climate change” now & not “global warming” anymore? I think it’s probably because people became very skeptical & were not so quick at swallowing their garbage. Trouble is most believers are leftists who don’t or seldom watch or listen to conservative media so I’m afraid this is not over yet.

The list goes on and on. How about Justins’ right hand advisor Mr Butz or Kathleen Wynne, with her cap and trade scheme for everyone but those she chooses to exempt, and a green energy program that benefits foreign companies at the expense of rate payers with little to no affect on our environment. Or maybe the whole CBC with its huge staff and travel expenses and little accountability to the taxpayers who foot the bills. How about Maurice Strong and George Sorous with their backroom deals that in part use climate change fear mongering and bullying to push their own anti-west agendas.

Well done rebel. Thanks. As a former meteorologist I have seen this hypocrisy for a few decades starting with the International Panel on climate Change. Then Kyoto accord and they never use science , but make us feel guilty for not being green enough.

“Suzuki jet sets back and forth from that dictatorship island in the pacific he likes to promote so much (the name escapes me at the moment). It came to me, Bhutan I think it is called. Another dictator loving Socialist!

Anonymous said: “Climate change advocates get rich, we must join, go with the trend, it seems to be your friend…” Until they decide they don’t like you anymore! Then you’re toast (caused by global warming of course)!

Never did buy those twisty bulbs. Stocked up on incandescent bulbs until LED got down to an affordable price. Actually haven’t heard much from Gore or Suzuki lately.

How about Obama? Shouldn’t he be there somewhere?
Then, of course there is John Kerry who should receive notable mention.

And all raking in the dough!

Which is what they are really after.

Follow the money.

Oh come now, not hypocrites, just the cognitive dissonance crowd in the shallow end of the gene pool!

Didn’t Al Gore, after ranting about the oceans’ rising, purchase some waterfront property in California? Suzuki jet sets back and forth from that dictatorship island in the pacific he likes to promote so much (the name escapes me at the moment). After spending tens of millions of dollars eliminating mercury and lead from paints, blinds, and other products we now have “Toxic Twisties” to light our homes!!? Are the enviro nuts crazy? Yes, of course they are. Not only are they expensive compared to traditional incandescent bulbs, but note the vast majority are produced by that great keeper of the environment, (Justin’s admired Gov’t) China!

You didn’t think sacrificial, anti-industrial, anti-employment, anti-low tax action to “save the planet” was for the elite, did you? Nah, that’s just for the little people. The elite are too busy enjoying life to the hilt to engage in that kind of stupidity.

Man-made ‘Climate change’ (The warmers can’t bring themselves to say ‘global warming’ any more with a straight face) is a scam to enrich certain elites and the developing nations at the expense of the Western world’s middle and working classes. To understand how it began and how it works, do a search: “Call it the mystery of the missing thermometers”, read the article by Richard Foot, and learn in five minutes how we are being conned into believing the planet is warming when in fact it is actually cooling right now and has been for most or all of the last seventy years.
